Using a process she refers to as intuitive design, Michelle Osborne creates powerful images that emerge from abstract backgrounds. Her work conveys energy and emotion by combining the bold movement of abstract with playful and compelling scenes. Michelle continues to explore new ways to express and share the creative process and hopes to create a body of work that will serve as a catalyst to spark creativity in others.


Michelle’s art education includes participation in community art courses as well as ongoing involvement in thriving creative communities such as Tacoma Arts and Crafts group. These affiliations offer opportunities to explore new techniques while providing a place for collaboration, inspiration, experimentation, and support. Her past works include commissioned murals, custom furniture embellishment, and original paintings enjoyed by local and international collectors.
